Mike hit the road at about the exact same time that we wrapped up this promotion. So he has to get back to his place to send out DVD's and/or books.

I just joined the forum, sorry to have missed Mike. I built my underground place back in 1984 using many of the techniques from the 50 dollar and up book. Even corresponded via snail mail with Mike at the time. I've since upgraded the roof of our place with 60 mil EPDM, running it out and away from the house 8 feet to create an umbrella. I've no doubt that material will last beyond my grandchildren's lifetimes.
We plant squash on the roof during the growing season. The leaves, a foot above the surface, shade the roof and aid in keeping our place very cool...
We live in an area which often gets 30 below zero (F) temperatures in the winter, but we are snug and cozy and use very little wood in our fireplace (which heats our centrally located sauna, acting as a plenum)...
There's no place like 127.0.0.1. But I'll always remember this tiny ad:
